I was working down (in my studio) and allowed in some guys, Blondie Chaplin and a few other cats that I'm working with. And I got this request to do the something for Timeless, the Hank Williams compilation that came out last year. I said, Yeah, I'd love to do - I was firmly convinced that someone else would have cut it - so I said I'll do it if I can do "You Win Again", and they called back and told me that, funny enough, no one had tried that one. So I said, OK, I'm in. So we cut it down in the basement and it came out and we got a Grammy!
